Tribute to a mentor, Shakibu Alabi Balogun (SAB)
By Yomi Oseni
Popularly called SAB by admirers, Shakiru Alabi Balogun is a household name within and outside Alimosho Local Council Development Area (LCDA) of Lagos State.
He is a totally progressive person who people will always like to associate with. His simplicity, liberal mind, loyalty and commitment to the masses’ growth make him a unique leader among many.
Cute, intelligent, handsome and God fearing, he is a leader who believes in the Almighty path to greatness.
Although he is gentle, he doesn’t tolerate nonsense as he is a firm believer in equality of all men, irrespective of age, creed or status. Regardless of your background, he is friendly to everybody and that is why I see him a my political father. He is a born leader and father that anyone can be proud of anytime.
With the little he has, he is one of those who stands by the less-privileged, especially women and students when they are troubled. Till tomorrow, SAB still practices same. He has always been asociated with me and I am strongly with him, even if many are still doing their research to know what has kept our relationship thick.
My boss, your encouragement is springing me up and I make bold to state that come rain, come shine, I am proud to be called your mentee
Omobalogun, you are indeed worthy of emulation;
Olowo otun Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Omo Alhaji Balogun Ope, tested and trusted at all time….
